Seeding the Wind II
This month "Seeding the Wind II" is featured at the Truth and Beauty Gallery, this 24" by 30" archival sublimation print is available for sale through the gallery. Enquires can be directed to Peppa Martin at 604.707.0327 or peppa@truthandbeauty.ca. 
This is the first print in this series to be mounted on a floating frame, it is part of a series called "Arrangements."
I was drawn into this work by discarded bouquets, set aside as they wilted but to my eye still full of colour, shape and still in transition, perhaps always in transition as decay eventually rekindles life. I took these discards and after some contemplation, arranged them into compositions, in which I explored their new colours, shapes and fragile state. So the series in a way is a framing of a series of Maranasati meditations or a momento moris.
[This method of printing was chosen so no glass would be placed between the print and the viewer so the full colours of the composition could be enjoyed, it is an easily cleaned scratch-resistant surface that has an archive life (I have been told) longer than a chromogenic print.]
